This is Sea Mist. Wondering if any one else has it planted in their garden? Its suppose to be zone 5, so am wondering how it will do over winter.

I have a caryopteris too, but mine is sunshine blue or something like that. In Melinda Meyers new book she says that even though they are zone 5 she has never lost one. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

OOps, my head must be in the sea. Its actually Blue Mist. Caryopteris x clandonesnsis zone 5-9 Full sun, deer resistant, attract butterflies, drought tolerant. Ht 2-3'

Know the bees love it too. :) Hope mine is like Melinda Meyers in that I don't lose it over winter either.
